Cascade Compact Knuckleboom

These are the hydraulic controls for a compact knuckle-boom (or loader crane) on a dock in Anacortes. It's rated for 9650 lbs, but its capacity decreases quickly as the geometry becomes unfavorable when the boom extends.

It was marketed by Cascade Corporation in Portland, but was actually built by TCM in Japan.
